Mix Match Blog Hop

February 11, 2018


   Mix anything from the 2018 Spring Catalog with something from the 2017-18 Annual Catalog is the theme for this Blog Hop.


I have kept it simple.


My neck brace is keeping doing anything.   I had a Cervical fusion at C4-C7 on January 29th and it truly is a experience.   I have Arthritis so bad.    2013 had hip replacement, 2014 knee replacement, 2016 hyperparathyroid surgery and now 2018 neck/back cervical surgery.   My life is nothing I planned.   I will hit 60 this week and I am very sad.    I have hospital bills and doctor bills on payment plans that take everything I get.    I have tried and tried and it is like I am in this black hole.   I love creating and giving.   The joy is there but the funds are not.   Our area is economically depressed so I have tried so hard reaching out and giving.  Life is that way.  Sad but true.


I created this card to send to a friend.  I do so much to bring joy to others because I know the heartache.  


I used whiper white card stock 11 x 4-1/4" scored at 5-1/2".  I used the beautiful paper, Designer Series Paper, Painted with Love cut to 4" x 5-/14", attached to whisper white.   I cut out a heart from the sweet and sassy framelets from gold foil and than another small heart from another print of the Painted with Love paper.   I stamped the sentiment from the January 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit HAPPY ValenTINES DAY.    i than said, it needs a little more, so I added a leave branch cut form the Petal Palette Die Set.   All and all, simple and sweet.   Enjoy!
